Need some advice here fella's. I have an 05 250 PSD with 6" of lift. Rear lift is blocks. Getting ready to order the XCAL3 from Matt and some of his mild tunes. Should I be concerned about the added power and axle wrap with NO traction bars. Maybe I am paranoid but it seems like the added lift using blocks is not a sturdy setup.
i have a 06 will a 6" lift with springs though but even stock if i backed out of the drive way i would get it hoping i put procomp bars on it and they work great i got all the banks stuff no wheel hop at all
yea you can i have a bds 6" and i could have left the stock block out to make the truck level our put it in like i did to make the rear higher....but i could have used an even taller block to make it higher yet....just dont stack blocks on top of each other....since you used just blocks i would recommend the traction bars the taller blocks will put more stress on the springs and make even more wheel hop....i got mine on ebay bran new for like $280
ya see i always thought you could but when i called down to 4wheel parts they said first off they dont make them for fords anymore... which made no since and then they said they couldnt do it haha, so i just got the suspension 6 inch

I have 4in blocks on my truck and I have some axle wrap, but it feels the same to what stock was. I wouldn't worry if your not going to race where your doing 15psi drag launches. I've done 4 wheel launches, burnouts and 50 mph beach cruises with no problems (knock on wood), so I think you will be fine.
Check out Jesse's at farmboyfabrications.com He has an incredible traction bar set up. I have one of his first sets and its now called the stage one. I pull with my truck and have no issues. In fact it cured all the vibration i had.
